Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas’ wedding weekend was outstanding

The photos are straight out of a fairy-tale!


The most anticipated celebrity wedding since Meghan Markle’s nuptials to Prince Harry has taken place, and we’re in awe! Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in Jodhpur, India over the weekend, with not one but two wedding ceremonies, reflective of their respective faiths.

Pictures from the Western ceremony have just surfaced through People magazine, and we’re currently picking our jaws from off the floor (and wiping away the tears now that Jonas is no longer on the market).

The weekend-long celebrations began on Friday with a Mehendi ceremony – a traditional Indian ceremony that’s part of the pre-wedding rituals. In a typical Mehendi ceremony, all of the women in the bride and groom’s families, along with close friends, gather together while the bride has elaborate henna designs applied to her hands and feet. “We made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed,” said the couple.

The former Quantico actress said that planning their wedding with amalgamations of both their families, faiths and cultures was an amazing experience, and what better way to celebrate all that than with two (yes, two) big weddings?

For their Christian celebration on Saturday, both bride and groom wore bespoke Ralph Lauren, and each outfit featured personal touches of significance to the couple. Chopra wore a stunning gown she helped design together with the luxury fashion label that included floral and scroll motifs, scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar, all of which complemented the bride’s 75-foot-long tulle veil. Her ensemble was hand-beaded and hand-embroidered, and even featured a piece of her mother-in-law’s wedding dress sewn inside.

A representative for Ralph Lauren said that the intricate embroidery, which included pearl paillettes, crystal seed beads, and Swarovski crystals, took 1,826 hours to complete! There were eight personal words and phrases stitched into the gown, including the couple’s wedding date, Jonas’ full name (Nicholas Jerry Jonas), and Chopra’s parents’ names (Madhu and Ashok Chopra), as well as ‘Hope’, ‘Family,’ and ‘Love’.

For their Hindu wedding on Sunday, the couple donned full Indian dress. Chopra wore the traditional scarlet red ensemble complemented with a red veil, while Jonas wore the customary golden ensemble and matching turban.
